• Participate in trade conferences and expositions, including conducting presentations and staffing program exhibit booths

• Analyze market-rate and low-income residential energy efficiency program goals and successes
• Manage and present on webinars for stakeholders, energy efficiency contractors, program administrators and contractors
• Research and write papers on home energy and home performance topics
• Perform market studies and analysis related to home performance related topics and issues
• Conduct phone calls, in-field meetings, and presentations to recruit program partners.

• 3 to 5 years’ relevant experience (experience in communications, home performance, energy efficiency, residential buildings, and/or account management preferred)
• Experience implementing communication and marketing strategies on a local, regional, or national basis. This is to include mass communication, webinars, internet marketing, press releases, etc.
• High level of independent judgment and discretion in providing programmatic and logistical support to clients
• Competency in serving clients with diplomacy and respect
• Travel anticipated 20-25% of the time
• Understanding of and compliance with SRA’s philosophy, goals, objectives, applicable regulation, policies and procedures.

Desired skills:
• Master’s degree
• Ability to effectively communicate orally and in writing with a range of stakeholders at any level from general public to upper management including being sensitive to professional ethics, gender, cultural diversities and disabilities.
• Knowledge of federal and state government policies, contracts, grants, and programs a plus.
• Knowledge of residential energy efficiency/home performance industry and market issues relevant to the industry’s development and growth
• Ability to serve as both an effective team-player and to be self-motivated
